Both are recommended, in order to have as many people testing the
various bits of code on as many different systems as possible (assuming
your interest in the beta is to help with bug testing).

If /home is its own partition, yes. Just don't allow the installer to
automatically partition for you. Choose manual partitioning, and edit
the current /home partition to mount /home and "Leave as is". You'll
need to edit the remaining partitions to set the mount points and mark
them for reformatting. You may want to backup any config files in /etc
that you've made changes to before doing the install, as well as any
databases, web pages, etc., in /var.

You'll probably need to update your versions of yum and apt, or at least
change the repositories to point to the appropriate beta repositories.
